I got a 05 rincon trx 650 fa today with winch

front disc brakes to 83 hours.

Damn it got some power.

Im gonna ride my ass off this week end.

what all should i include in my tool bag .

Like what if i slash a tire .

i was thinking green slime and a can of fix o flat for smaller stuff plus some plain plugs.

What comes to mind bros?

Dont use green slime its just a waste of money..in my opinion... fix a flat is good but the problem with that is once u use it u can inflate the tire anymore... u should be fine u can just can some patches at ur auto part store and those should be good.. but the tires on the rincon are 6ply so getting a whole in it would be "kinda" hard to do.. include and extra spark plug and the origional tools that r on the atv should be good enough... def bring a small gas tank just in gase...and a tow rope is another good thing

Just reading your post. We were up at Prentice Cooper form about noon to 4pm today. Were you alone and what color ATV? We may have passed on the trails. I won't be going back on Sunday but I'm sure I will in a short time. You're right...cold today up there!

That is something I call throttle thumb or arm pump. You just have to train your muscles to work like that. There are products out there that make the thumb piece longer so you use more hand than just thumb.

I'm glad you're enjoying yourself! Ride hard, ride safe, ride often!

Yep...had a blast. My wife drove for the first time and I think we're going to get her an ATV for herself. It would make both of use more comfortable. Any good places in N GA, N AL, or TN that you'd suggest riding?

Wooly's Off Road is/was an awesome place to ride. I haven't been since they had to fix some issues with the Government but I will go back for sure. That is why I put the is/was in there. It is one of our favorites.

I guess I could do a net search but I'd rather have 'local' info. Is Dry Gulch in CP? I ride and most of the time don't bother to check the names out. Where's Coppinger Cove? What's the difficulty of it?

I think the fam is going next Tuesday afternoon since it's raining today and we don't want to discourage the women. :no: Probably a good thing since my back isn't cooperating today.

      Hello from Buhl, Idaho (near Twin Falls). I typically ride at least once a week in the Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada area. Also like to ride in Colorado, Utah (especially Moab), Montana and Wyoming. I currently ride a 2013 Yamaha Grizzly 550. Anybody want to ride in Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada area look me up. I know these areas very well. I've also done a lot of dirt bike riding and 4X4 (Jeep) in the above listed areas over the last 15 years.

      Is anyone going to the 2019 Mud nats in Hill City MN? I've never been and just learned about it. Since it's so close to me I'm thinking I'm going to try heading out there. I've never been to a mud event before and I think it'll be fun to see.

      To start it off, I'd like to share the bakery display cases I made for my wife. I'm sure ya'll have some impressive stories behind those HF tools, let's see 'em!
       
      I built these bakery display cases for wife on almost 100% HF tools a couple years ago. Only thing I bought from Home Depot was the wood/plywood/stains and 3 sawhorses for my workbench. Router, circsaw, blades for both, sander, sandpaper, gloves, the nails for the nailgun (gun borrowed from dad, have a 5# pancake for air) I had almost zero tools to start.
      Some of their cheap "speed" clamps failed, but first time for me using those types of clamps, was expecting them to hold better:

      heh my youngest helping my dad glue:

      and for fun, here was the finished project (1 of 2, built 2 cases, this is the smaller .. the plastic was from Tap Plastics for the "sneeze guards" and the top case):

      back side showing both cases:

      Have you ever bought from Rocky Mountain ATV? If so, what did you buy and how was the service, shipping, price, etc. Just looking for some feedback. They seem to still be one of the leaders out there in atv parts and accessories, although I don't usually recommend them because I don't use them personally.

      Anyone on here ride around the Farmington, Lewiston, Augusta area of Maine? I've had a wheeler for years but haven't had much luck finding legal connector trails and always end up riding little stubs. I'd love to chat about riding in the area.

      2011 Grizz 700 here and so far the only thing I've been told about replacing my coolant is that I should put the same color stuff back in that came out. But other than that nothing specific. A search through both the service or owner's manual gave no coolant info other than capacity. Here's a comparison of the old and the proposed new...

      The stuff on the left, what's coming out, is a blue-green. I'm second owner and only put about 75 miles on the machine, so I have no idea how old this coolant is.
      Stuff on the right is the new coolant the guy at the car shop suggested, and is more of a pure lighter translucent blue. It's Pentofrost NF, whatever that is. He said it's what's recommended for European, including BMWs. Here's the bottle...

      So...
      1) have I found the right coolant?
      and
      2) does this stuff need to be diluted? The bottle says it's 'full strength.'

      Hello! I am new here and I need some help from the experts. My 9 year old son was given an adult sized 4 wheeler for Christmas. He has never ride one and has never taken a training course. Of course, I just found out about this but was never consulted about him getting this, either.
      Anyways, he was able to ride it this morning and has never had any safety training and honestly, I am petrified he is going to get hurt. It will happen, it's just when.
      I am in the state of Indiana and the law states you must be 14 years old to operate unless there is direct supervision of an 18 year old or other. What exactly does "direct supervision " mean? Is rhis within site of the person riding or is it someone that is ON the ATV?
      Also if there are ANY SUGGESTIONS you guys can give me regarding this it would be helpful.
      My son is only 9 and a very immature 9 year old at that. I feel he has no business being on this without proper training but apparently that isn't as important to some people.
      Also, if there is anyone in the state of Indiana on here that can tell me the rules that would be awesome.
      *in addition* the 4 wheeler is for an adult. My son is only 4 foot 9 and 65 pounda. He's tiny. I am afraid he is certainly nowhere close to having the weight to control this machine.

      Hey all! I grew up riding friends' ATVs from about 9 to 14 years old. Since then, I've only gotten to ride 2 or 3 times (I'm 32 now), so I'm very much out of the loop. A friend of mine just started dating a girl with an ATV and just talking about riding gave me the itch so bad that I'm about to buy a couple for myself and I could really use some help.
      The ATVs I grew up riding were 400cc Honda 4x4 utility quads and I've never so much as sat on a racing bike but, looking at my selection on Craigslist, I'm finding a ton of sexy, seemingly well priced race bikes. My girlfiend, on the other hand, is dead set on utility ATVs. I may compromise and get one of each.
      I'm a bit worried about stepping into race ATV territory, though, for a couple reasons. First, I'm finding that several people are selling theirs because they're "too fast". I'm all for some speed but I don't wanna kill myself and I don't wanna be intimidated by the bike. When I was a kid, we'd throttle those Honda 400s all the way down the trails, hitting about 50mph, but these 450 race bikes are topping out closer to 70 or so, not to mention I'm sure they have a lot more get up & go in the low gears. Secondly, I'm worried about the ability of race bikes to handle mud. I live in Florida and I'll primarily just be riding dirt trails but rain and mud are inevitable. I see a lot of the race bike sellers saying things like "never been in mud". Is mud that damaging to these types of ATVs?
      I'm sure I'll have more questions. I'm spending all day today just perusing Craigslist and narrowing down my choices.
      I appreciate any help you guys can offer. Thanks!

      i have a 95 bayou 220 not sparking. i have measured all of the connectors on the cdi and most are within the manuals ranges. but there are a couple that measured alot higher than their given ranges. does this indicate the cdi is bad ?
